Update Round Up

September 7, 2017

I've have a tight and inflexible schedule, which means I tend to neglect tasks that are not immediately pressing -- updating this blog, for example. So rather than post any new content, here are some of the notable things going on in my world.

 

Most significantly, Making Sense of the Alt-Right is now available. Amazon started shipping copies about three weeks ahead of schedule. I'm not sure why that happened. My guess is that the press thought the subject was timely right at the moment, but it may not stay that way. And if that is what they thought, I suspect they are right.

 

My 2016 book, Right-Wing Critics of American Conservatism, is now available in paperback. However, it does not appear to be any cheaper than the hardcover version, at least on Amazon. The paperback release came about because the book is still selling, so UPK did not want it to go out of print. That's helpful for me, as I will probably continue to assign that book in my classes for a long time to come. For the most part, the content in the paperback version is the same. But I did correct a couple of minor errors.

 

I wrote a piece for The American Conservative on the Alt-Right.

 

Post-Charlottesville, my inbox was full of interview requests from journalists. For awhile I was agreeing to every one, so I was quoted in dozens of venues across the world over the course of about two weeks. I won't link to all of them, but here are some of the more significant articles and broadcasts.

National Public Radio
